Congress team to spice up ‘Dongkoy Cup’ finals-A A +A
Thursday, October 11, 2012
REPRESENTATIVES Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano of Misamis Oriental and Datu Arroyo of Pampanga will lead anew the Congress team in another exhibition match here with the local ABC squad.
The rematch play is set to spice up the championship game of the 2nd Mayor Dongkoy Emano Cup Inter-Barangay basketball tournament on Oct. 20 before a highly-anticipated jampacked crowd at the Xavier University gym.
“Napilde namo sila during their first visit here pero grabe ka close fight mora’g one shot raman tingali ang labaw. Because of that, we expect them to seek revenge kay modula na kuno ilang mga tag-as nga wala nakatunga during our first encounter,” said Mayor’s Cup organizer Boboy Sabal who also considered the media team’s participation in the preliminary games.
The semifinal round will start on Friday at Barangay Bulua gym without defending champion Lapasan which got eliminated on Sunday by Camaman-an, 104-96.
Next in line for the streaking Camaman-anis the Junjun Daanoy-led Iponan which finished runner-up last season.
“Kuyaw nga record ang ma-achieve sa Camaman-an kon ilang mapeldi ang Iponan. Slaying last season’s finalist teams is such a record-setting feat,” added Sabal’s second fiddle Chinglai Casiño. (LLS)
